Partnership deal for land charity

Landscaping firm joins with Groundwork to boost environmental and commercial benefits

Sones Landscaping has signed a partnering agreement with environmental charity Groundwork South Tyneside, bringing mutual environmental and commercial benefits. The County Durham-based firm is responsible for grounds maintenance of Wear Valley District Council assets, as well as some of the region’s commercial sites, including the Metro Centre and the Newcastle & Cobalt Business Park. As part of the agreement, Sones will source plants from Groundwork’s nurseries, taking on bedding plants grown as part of a local employment and training scheme. Sones director Jim Campbell said: “Sones and Groundwork will work closely to initiate a balanced environmental approach to future projects. Balancing environmental and commercial drivers is the crucial challenge in today’s world.” The arrangement supports the Groundwork objectives of developing sustainable, community-supported projects that improve local environments. Groundwork South Tyneside director Lionel Hehir said: “We work hard to achieve sustainability by involving the community. The link with Sones is a valuable part of this.”
